Another thanksgiving story
Hello friends in WA,
I want to share with you my story in my first thanksgiving day in US.
It was May 2013 when I arrived this country as immigrant, I began a new life in freedom. We were preparing our first thanksgiving celebration but life changed when I wake up that Thursday with a Bell's Palsy paralysis, for those who don't know it is face paralysis.
I was devastated, I thought what to thanks for? I didn't want to go emergency room, thank the support of my family I finally went and had the right treatment. My face was totally deformed, it was in the left side, I couldn't close my eye or drink water, I felt very bad.
Any way we went to the family meeting we had planned a long time ago, and there every friend and family tried to comfort me, and someone already had this type of paralysis years ago. At the end of the day, I thought what if it were a stroke? or an hemiplejia? or what happened if I had this in my country? OMG I found a lot to be grateful for.
Now after 5 years I remember it with tears in eyes, I recovered with few consequences, and I am grateful every single day of my life. I am alive, my children are very successful in this country and yesterday I was born again as US citizen.
Thank GOD for everything in my life.
Thank you for stop by my blog
Happy thanksgiving ! !
